Hackney late-night levy moves a step closer
PUBLISHED: 10:44 05 July 2016
The council’s plan to tackle late-night crime by charging businesses for selling alcohol past midnight was given the go ahead at a town hall meeting.
The late-night levy would see 399 licensees paying different amounts based on their value, with the money going towards paying for extra policing, security and cleaners in the early hours.
A consultation will be held should full council approve the proposals later this month after being agreed by a licensing committee on Thursday.
